Deconstructing the Jump Shot

Don't overcomplicate the process of aiming a jump shot. Figure out where the cue ball needs to hit the object ball, then decide where you need to hit the cue ball to make that happen.

While you line up the shot, keep your cue level so you can point directly at the intended contact spot on the object ball.

Ideally, should be planning to deliver the cue ball to make contact with the object ball and the table at the same time. This gives you optimal control of the cue ball for playing position for the next shot. Bouncing the ball off the table or hitting the top of the object ball often results in an unpredictable reaction from the cue ball.
